I love learning new things and taking on new projects.
Pleased to meet you!
What is an RGD?
Registered Graphic Designers have gone through a certification process specified by the Association of Registered Graphic Designers that verifies their education, training and experience in the industry and confirms their ability to perform to a high standard of competence. Through certification, I have a demonstrated an understanding of business best practices, accessible design principles, research methods and ethics, and the application of strategic design principles to marketing and communications challenges.
How is this good for my clients?
